Commercial Rights

As a default, Bards For Hire retains all music rights to reuse, which is a big reason why we are able to keep our prices as low as they are, and helps us protects the work and rights of our musicians.

You have the all rights to personal use and performance rights as part of the commssion. You may also use your songs in streams and podcasts as long as Bards for Hire is credited.

HOWEVER, if you'd like the sole rights to the song for commercial use, to alter the song, or release it yourself and be eligible for royalties, that's also awesome! This is the add on for you! (Legals to be uploaded to the website soon, message us for details in the meantime if you're interested.)

Join the chorus!

Add a personal touch by becoming part of your song! We think it's a nice touch if your family joins in on the final chorus of your grandfather's birthday, or your D&D group gives voice to the rowdy tavern crowd singing your shanty. 

(For an example, check out 'Ode to King Lew' - a song for a 90th birthday now available on your favourite streaming service. Starting at time code 2:05, the song features a choir of 30 family members along with a Frank Sinatra impersonator!)

It's easy to do! We send you what to sing, lyrics, the instrumental, and a simple how-to guide.

No need to be professional singer! Being a shower-level singer is perfect. Honestly.

Besides, we can do some tech wizardry to make you sound angelic regardless!
